USA military no longer has presence in Niger

Andrea Widburg points to the latest chilling situation on the globe, where the USA military has been banished from Niger, a country overrun with Islam:
Nobody in America thinks about Niger in Africa, but Niger matters in the war against radical Islam and in the world’s balance of power. Now, though, we must think about Niger because it appears that Biden’s foreign policy incompetence, combined with America’s general weakness, has led to the new military junta kicking America out of a forward base that allowed it to attack radical Islam in the region and a country that’s one of the world’s biggest uranium suppliers.

Because Niger isn’t on anyone’s radar, here’s a bit of background:

Niger, a former French colony, is a landlocked nation in northwestern Africa. It’s home to multiple ethnic groups, but they’re bound together by one thing: Islam, which accounts for over 99% of the population. Despite being one of the world’s poorest countries, it’s also home to some of the world’s largest uranium deposits, making it a very important country.

It’s not just uranium that makes Niger an important country. For a long time, Niger has cooperated with the American military, allowing it to have outposts there. These outposts enabled the U.S. to keep an eye on and attack violent Islamist groups in North Africa. They also served as a counterbalance to Russia, which is desperate to gain influence there (as, seemingly, is China).

As with almost all African countries, Niger has had an endless modern history of tyranny and poverty. The latest tyranny cycle occurred last July when a military junta overthrew a democratically elected president (and I’m sure that election was as honest as 2020’s in America). The current leader is Abdourahamane Tchiani (aka Omar Tchiani), who supported the losing president in that election.

According to an analysis shortly after the coup, it’s probable that the State Department’s inattention and the Biden administration’s ineptitude contributed to the coup’s success. Given the many coups sweeping the region, it wasn’t hard to guess that more were in the works. An administration with its eye on the ball wouldn’t have been as surprised as Biden and his team were. The same essay has a long list of flabby Africa policies in the White House that kept it from knowing what was happening and responding appropriately.
So there we have yet another sad situation, where the Religion of Peace is dominant in a foreign country, and nothing was ever done to get the residents to abandon adherence to Islam. And that failure will end up becoming very costly in the long run.
